year we were certainly roughing it
in three air conditioned motor homes.
Perhaps one of two statements apply:
a) We're getting older.
b We're getting better.
Personally I'm opting for the latter!
we were able to set-up
and take-down under dry conditions.
It was the in between all day Saturday
and Saturday evening in a constant
downpour of rain that made us
thankful to be already set up in dry
self contained motor homes...
Field Day was a very good time indeed!
Probably one of our best overall
scores in recent years...

Isn't the country beautiful out here in Kankakee County?
Yes places like this still exist in Illinois.
Unfortunately this may be our last year
at this wonderful Field Day site...
This is the place known to local hams as "Smith Hill".
Note: This aerial shot shows
the use of safety tape
around the perimeter of the tower guys.
(Thanks once again as last year
to Taylor-Brown RV Center
in Bourbonnais for allowing us to
borrow the 40 foot motor home.)
